At the conclusion of each round at the 2023 BNP Paribas Open, we take you inside the numbers to shine a light on some of the most significant statistical achievements taking place around the grounds. With the action just winding down, we take you through for a quarterfinal recap, by-the-numbers…
Carlos Alcaraz is the teenage wunderkind at this year’s BNP Paribas Open. The 19-year-old advanced will begin his 17th week as the ATP’s top-ranked player if he defeats Daniil Medvedev in Sunday’s men’s singles final.
World No.1 Swiatek’s bid ended in the semifinals with her loss to Rybakina. We’ll have to wait until next year.

Carlos Alcaraz is scorching-hot this year in the California desert. He is the only remaining player that has yet to drop a set – can Medvedev find a way past him?
Alcaraz (2022 US Open), Medvedev (2021 US Open), Sabalenka (2023 Australian Open) and Rybakina (2022 Wimbledon), have all won their maiden Grand Slam singles titles with the last two years.
How does he do it? Swollen ankle, bloodied hand, challenging conditions. Nothing seems to be able to stop Daniil Medvedev from doing what he does best – winning.
It has been a close yet lopsided head-to-head between these two powerhouses. Sabalenka has won all four of their meetings in a deciding third set. Will they make it five on Sunday in the women’s singles final?

Sabelenka lost to Krejcikova in Dubai, and avenged that loss earlier this week in the quarterfinals. What a year she is having.
Alcaraz, at 19 years and 318 days, is bidding to become the youngest champion in the California desert since Boris Becker in 197.
Dating back to his first set at Rotterdam, way back in February. Daniil Medvedev has won all but five sets in his 19 consecutive victories.
For the fifth consecutive year, both the men’s and women’s singles champions will claim their maiden BNP Paribas Open title.
